Lilac: I said now!
Me: Do you know what time it is?
Lilac: I'm a dog. I don't concern myself with human conventions like time.
Me: Apparently not.
Lilac: I'm waiting!
Me: I have NO idea what you want at this hour!
Lilac: (pant, pant) How can you not know?
Me: Um, because I'm not a dog?
Lilac: That is obvious!
Me: Can you not just tell me what you want?
Lilac: You're supposed to know!
Me: Well, I don't. So, just tell me what it is!
Lilac: I forgot.
Me: You forgot?! Then it couldn't have been that important!
Lilac: I am sure that it was very important, and it's your job to remember it! I'm old, dammit!
Me: Actually, I need to get some sleep so I can go to my job and earn money to buy you stuff. So, I'll talk to you about this later.
So, the next night we decided to try an experiment. We brought her bed in, fluffed the pillows in the artful way she seems to prefer, and then brought her fan into the bedroom. The fan was plugged in and aimed right at her highness. We all had a much better night's sleep. It's amazing the things we'll do for love, a few hours sleep, or both!
